What has similar or better perf. than Hobby King F-5E

Hi All

I have the HK L-39 Brietling jet and found it to be lacking in performance, I went to the F-5E (The Swiss Patruille Suisse Scheme) on 3 cells it really is a great machine, really gets small pretty quick, even does partial vertical!.

My question is has anyone else had any experience with any other Hobby King EDFs that have a high performance, I'm going to buy another, but don't want to end up with another L-39, that flew ok, but no where near as well as the F-5E, what are you suggestions???

I would say the F15 would be safe I have two different f15's both fly different but nice and stable. The 70mm bae hawk it flys very nice with a good power set up. Here is my bros A4 speed junky this one is from NP but is the same jet just different paint.

NitroPlanes $60 BAe Hawk (5 min 36 sec)

Yes the blue camo f15, The t45 hawk(70mm) is a kit they sell. It was running a het 2w20 motor and a 6904 fan on a 3600 4s30c pack. A lot of people have had great luck with the 50mm stuff as well.
